Travelling from Bruges (Brugge) to Paris by train

From medieval to magnifique (not that Bruges isn’t stunning), the train route from Bruges to Paris lets you go from old-world charm to the bright lights of the French capital. Explore the beautifully quaint cobbled streets and enchanting canals of the Belgian city before heading to romantic Paris, all by magic. Well, by train, but we think a 2.5 hour trip on a Thalys train, complete with free WiFi, on-board restaurant and three comfort classes is pretty mystical.

Step off in the heart of Paris, where you can reminisce over the canals you were exploring only 2 hours ago over some delectable French cuisine, or even some noodles - did you know Paris’ Chinatown is the largest in Europe? The Eiffel Tower awaits, as does the Louvre, but if you’re really missing waterside living, Paris can still provide, try taking a cruise down Saint Martin's Canal.
